In chilly winter, India limits buying of fuel by Kashmir people

In a first in Kashmir, the Indian administration has rationed fuel for the residents as the disputed regions battles heavy snowfall.  

The top most India-appointed administrative officer has asked the various departments to ensure there is a cap on buying of fuel for vehicles and cooking.  

PK Pole, the divisional commissioner of Kashmir, on Tuesday issued strict guidelines, ordering strict market checking and asking petrol pump owners to provide limited fuel to the commuters.  

In an order, Pole has also asked the administration to provide LPG cylinders to the consumers only after 21-days against proper acknowledgment and record.  

As per the order, only 3 litres of petrol/diesel will be issued to two-wheelers. 05 litres to three-wheelers, 10 litres to private owned four-wheelers and 20 litres each to commercial four-wheelers and heavy motor vehicles including buses and trucks. 

“The instructions are hereby issued for strict adherence by all concerned,” the order states. 

The restrictions come as the region battles severe cold amid pesky power supply.
